tv   After the Bell  FOX Business  July 10, 2014 4:00pm-5:01pm EDT

4:00 pm
crummy market. [closing bell ringing] great numbers out of united on heels of american yesterday. adam: bells are ringing on wall street. let's look how stocks are finishing the day. you can see the dow, although down 70 points hasn't settled yet. we fought back as cheryl pointed out from being down 180 points. you have nasdaq down 22 points. s&p down eight points. we still have guests coming up who say, hey, s&p 500 and 2000, even 2100. get ready. "after the bell" starts right now. cheryl: let's get into today's market action right now. we have got craig johnson, piper jaffray senior technical analyst who thinks we won't see a substantial pull back anytime soon. the patrick kidser, grand did i wine global partners. why he likes the auto industry despite the massive recalls. michael gerka from the cme.
4:01 pm
michael, i want to start with you, the what a roller-coaster ride. are we that sensitive when it comes to markets when we have a portuguese bank send the dow down 110 points for session lows and other markets as well? >> all we need is any kind of reason to start the day to sell the market off and it is going to happen. one of the things you normally count on is buying opportunities. granted with the s&p up here at what, 1975 earlier, above those levels it is a little different. but on the pullback it is gets a little more attractive. i think the vix held in there very well. i wasn't surprised how everything came back in particular 10-year yields are right back in the middle of that range. i think it is good buying opportunity going into earnings. adam: craig, i'm curious, investors when we get pull back like we had, 110 points, is there opportunity to buy in or rotation taking place from fixed income into equities? is now the time to be really doing that? >> i think the market was very amazing today.
4:02 pm
it was a very scary situation at the open, given selloff you've seen in europe. clearly markets, investors want to be buying on these dips. they have missed part of the move this year. they have been scared out of the market. when they get these dips i think they will put their buying shoes on and they will want to stepping up. the rotation we've talked about for quite some time, has been muted out of fixed income into equities. because rates stayed low. what i think is also helping this market structurally, there are about a third fewer stocks in the market than there was in 2000. there is less product out there. you're seeing money come into those, into these names and seeing those stocks push higher. >> patrick, you're optimistic about the markets. you're basing that in part on the economy. i'm curious where you're get that from considering we've seen pressure in retail numbers today? >> you know retail numbers are interesting. it shows maybe there's a certain percentage of american consumers are stressed like your previously guest said. when we look across real time
4:03 pm
economic indicators, we had railcar loading data out. that was very good, very strong. looks like it might be accelerating. new unemployment claims clearly very good. bank loans appear to be accelerating. airline traffic demand is strong. auto production supposed to be up in the third quarter i could go on and on. when we see real time economic indicators, we see signs of accelerating activity. that i think supports the market. we need that to continue for the market to go higher. right now we see very favorable environment marketwise. adam: let me be the pessimist, patrick. bank loans are going to credit, i don't want to say unworthy, but those on borderline of credit risk. railcar loadings. we see companies overestimate how much they need in inventory before. is now the time really to be optimistic about this? we had a guest on earlier, walmart he is predicting will have to close 100 stores? >> yeah. well, which i think is extreme prediction, but when we look at railcar loadings, they're very
4:04 pm
strong in things like stone and housing products. they're very strong in chemicals and autos. we don't see an inventory situation there. bank loans i would dispute a little bit to lower quality borrowers. i think we've seen credit card growth for example, for first time in couple years. a lot of balance growth is coming from -- fairly low but first time in several years we've seen balanced growth. we've seen commercial industrial lending growth. i really actually think that the bank loan growth we're see something not on the low end of the market. maybe that is happening in the nonbank channels. but bank loan growth to me looks pretty high quality. cheryl: michael, i want to go back to you, switch gears and talk about what we initially saw this morning when the selloff began and saw a pop for commodities, particularly metals, gold and silver. this begs the question, whether or not those safe havens are better bet for some of our viewers and investors, that are still nervous about the volatility that we're seeing and they don't frankly trust the
4:05 pm
markets? >> i mean there is reasons not to trust the market. again because of the fed, that is why you're not seeing these abrupt selloffs down 200, down 250. that being said we anticipated cfe to be good news for gold. those are occurrences not happen within an hour or two and take it root back. this is more of a long-term trend that comes into place. currently with gold 1300. the anticipation is more upside in gold. the guys behind me wishes selloff in equities were lot bigger so they could have bought into with two hands instead of one. adam: craig johnson, you think investors climb a wall of worry. knock on the berlin wall of worry and where would you put your money. >> there is a couple areas i would and wouldn't put my money. when i look at large cap financials. those look directional and absolute and relative basis. things like bank of america, citigroup look weak to me. what does look attractive based upon our work is lot of names
4:06 pm
like gilead, celgene, texas instruments. those biotech names and semiconductor names they're breaking out to all-time new highs. in secular bull market i'm buying all-time new highs. cheryl: patrick, one things that is interesting you like and one of your picks is general motors. we'll talk about it in the next hour of fox business about the issue that gm and frankly pressure that the company is under. coming up, let's talk about gm. why do you like it? >> yeah. there is two points i want to make. first on the business itself. when you look back at history of automotive recalls we've gone back 20 and 30 years to look at this there is almost no evidence, one case we found recall really impacted market share. so in the end these recalls are bad headlines and that creates the opportunity. really not impacting core business. any settlements unlikely time pack a very strong balance sheet. that point one. recalls ultimately don't matter
4:07 pm
especially -- time horizons an invest for the long term on the business. second thing i point out is simply price of gm is exceptionally attractive. the balance sheet is fantastic post-bankruptcy. we think it will earn $5 the next 18 months. looking at stock with seven 1/2 to eight pe. exceptionally cheap. it's a good company. the truck launch is going very well. they're getting pricing on their new vehicles. survey of american consumers recently and said what auto company do you associate with recalls? headline. the number one answer was not gm. so, people are really looking past this and consumers are looking past this. we still really like the stock long term. cheryl: we're doing a whole hour-long special coming up next hour on the network about issues at gm we'll leave it there. craig johnson, patrick, mike gerka we come back to you for the s&p futures close in just a moment. want to invest in the growth of chinese internet users? how about names that will benefit from a tablet takeover
4:08 pm

today. we'll of course track that stock for you. trw automotive, bucking today's downward trend posting gains on a possible takeover offer. adam: let's head back to nicole petallides on floor of the new york stock exchange. what are you watching? >> it is interesting, trw when you see it hitting a new high in trading today, we saw the stock finished higher more than 4.5%, at 95.63. it did cross the 101 mark. it got to 1. -- 101.9. this is speculation they may have a buyout offer. they won't engage in sales talks. they have seen reports, people familiar with the matter, bloomberg reporting that trw was in fact in talks with an german auto parts supplier. trw is michigan based company, makes airbags, electronics and steering systems. its customers are the main automakers, huge, huge names. ford, gm and the like.
4:13 pm
they also count volkswagen as the largest customer. back to you. cheryl: nicole, thank you very much, s&p futures are closing. we're going back to michael gerka in the pits of the cme. mike? >> without question i'm not surprised to see how this market will try to get at least a little bit uneasy into tomorrow's open, waiting from cue from europe to see if the europe does same thing again. second or third time is a charm up 2,000 s&p. once we get through that level, all the dialect will change here on this trading floor. again that i'm not wildly bullish. this economy is eventually coming back. i know europe is showing it to my. if anyone paid attention to the brit push pound, lately, unbelievable how bad the u.s. dollar is getting hit. cheryl: good for the yuan. michael, thank you very much. adam: always a silver lining somewhere, right? cheryl: i'm trying. i'm trying. we live in a age of new economic trend from the rise in home renters to the popularity of tablets to the surge in internet sites. adam: so how can an investor take advantage of those trend

4:15 pm
the fed or obamacare. you're going with internet play but more of a chinese internet play. is this more on heels obama obama play. >> internally we nicknamed this, waiting for obama obama. chinese listed companies in the u.s. focused on the chinese internet market. so a lot of market it has been up over 73 points over the last year. it is the excitement of alibaba. people forget alibaba is huge. bigger than amazon, paypal, ebay combined. $178 billion in sales last year. responsible for 60% of the packages shipped in china. phenomenal place. as people wait for the ipo this is one way to think about chinese internet. after ipos we'll rebalance into internet. adam: there is also a motif for shale oil here in the united states. how is that one playing out? >> it is up 42 points. a lot of attraction for shale oil is on what is going on in iraq. prices of oil with uncertainty are likely to go up. these are u.s. companies focused
4:16 pm
on u.s. shale. there is debate on releasing export sanctions that is driving excitement to this. this is nice way to play it. benefit of motifs they're customizable. the release of exports controls, and pioneer in the eagleford, you take a motif we built and customize it and eagleford is great area to have exposure and change the weighting of the motifs. >> we talk to you about tablets. there is motif based on takeover of tablets which i find interesting since you worked at microsoft but go. >> seen with tablets they are up 56% in growth. it is expected to drop to 12% this year. people get caught up what is a tablet. they're out with fablets, hybrid phone tablets are in. underlying component. touch-screen manufacturers. doesn't matter what size it is or what you call it. these underlying component manufacturers are doing it for
4:17 pm
computing go mobile. adam: when you buy the motif, what you're buying essentially investing in a motif looking at the chips or glass. >> that's right. adam: kind of like i won't say mutual fund but -- >> it is like etf but a customizable no fee etf. but it is not a fund. you can put as little as $50 or a million dollars to work. it looks and feels like an etf but thankfully it is not and you own the underlying securities. adam: i don't know if you recall this, there was study done, college students from best students in the country create motifs but big winners were 6th graders. >> we had competition. we didn't know there was a competition with motifs and they were done with sixth graders and sixth graders actually beat out the college kids. adam: save your quarter of a million lars. go to harvard business. cheryl: most of the business degree i didn't get anyway. hard deep. good to have you on the show. adam: it could be the most
4:18 pm

purchases. they claim the giant retailer billed parents for unauthorized made by children which totaled millions of dollars. google launch as 100 million-dollar startup fund in london. the fund will invest in european technology companies with the aim of developing firms across the continent. that is today's "speed read" buzz buzz. [buzzer] i pretty much made it. adam: you did it. this is game-changer for the medical diagnostics industry. they are disrupting the entire $73 billion blood testing industry. it is looking to replace services provided by giants lab corp and quest diagnostics which both closed down today. with a low cost and painless test. the creator joins us. elizabeth holmes with 19 years old when she dropped out of stanford this is great quote from article. when you reach the moment you're found what you're born to do you do it.
4:24 pm
what you have done elizabeth, created a company worth $9 billion. you are bringing this very simple, inexpensive lab testing, blood testing to the entire nation. 8200 wellness centers in walgreens. is there a target date when that will be completed? >> we're working to do it as fast as we can. our goal is to be within five miles of every person's home. to be able to help bring access to this capability, to everyone. adam: the thing that is important for those of us who have followed your story is that the company is still privately held. you just raised $400 million. you're now valued, theranos is valued greater than quest diagnostics or lab corp. the key is the testimonials. i read about one woman with diabetes explained in an email her insurance bill for lab testing, blood testing was 850 bucks. but the wellness center, exact
4:25 pm
same barrage of tests was $34. this is no-brainer not only for customers but for insurance companies and whole medical industry. >> it is and we really see it as a basic human right for every person no matter how much money they have or where they live, to be able to access this type of testing. when you think about a free society, so much it is built on the free access to information and one area which that is so inhibited is in health care where people have not had access to the kind of testing information that can change their lives. adam: so we talked in the past on fox business about the wellness centers. i was curious. i just had my annual physical in june. did traditional vial of blood. had to wait a couple days to find out cholesterol rating. if i go to wellness center would have happened in couple hours and saved me and insurance company quite a bit of money. is there any plan you go beyond the wellness centers, perhaps
4:26 pm
license the hardware and software that made all of this possible to individual doctors and hospital groups to which they belong to bring doesn't cost of those tests? >> well, we're working both in the wellness center context as well as the beginning to work with hospitals systems. we've recently announced our partnerships with intermountain health in utah and dignity in california. large hospital system in california. and we're working with ucsf here in san francisco as well. to be able to bring this type of capability into exactly the hospital setting as well as the outpatient setting through our wellness centers. adam: i know that you have, thearsnos could save the federal government through medicare around medicaid over the next 10 years something like $200 billion by lowing the costs of blood tests. with that in mind, i've in mind
4:27 pm
i asked you in the past, plans to go public? the reason i ask you again, critics, those looking at your company critically say in order to scale up you would need huge amounts of money to build the infr say, quest or lab corporation of america on the backburner. are they accurate? are they missing something? >> you know the way that we think about it we're successful if person by person we can bring access to this type of capability. and change their experience. so, our mission is to help eliminate the need for anyone to ever have to get blood drawn through big needles and for everyone to be able to afford and get access to real-time diagnostic information and, we have a very long-term mind set doing that. we worked very hard for a long time to buildout this infrastructure and in order to be able to do this and we think about it now in terms of each experience and each person that
4:28 pm
we serve. we're a private company but we're certainly working to grow as fast as we can. adam: can you do that though, remaining a private company? as i was sitting in dr. lane's office having the blood drawn i actually was thinking about their a knows, the day i will go to the wellness center, get results to bring them to the doctor or whether my doctor will be able to do that? can you do what you're talking about without going public? >> he will you know, right now what our focus is now is execution and absolutely we have the opportunity to execute with the resources that we have and the infrastructure that we've built and, as i said, we're looking at this in terms of a very long-term plan and we've, we've definitely prepared to be able to make that type of investment. adam: last question, elizabeth. i know that some of the motivation of the company is comfort, cost and control. the wellness centers, the 8200 walgreens, is there a target date by which, you know, just all of us, that 310 million
4:29 pm
americans we can walk into the neighborhood walgreens and take advantage of this? >> we're working on it. right now our immediate focus is in arizona and here in california. and we're working to deploy the infrastructure first throughout phoenix and bay area and then expanding but, our mission and our purpose is certainly to fill, once we're national. and that is what we're spending all our time on. adam: elizabeth, i will quote you. you already said it once during the interview, you said we're success if person by person we help make a difference in their lives. you're doing that and i know your team is wildly supportive. is amazing to watch you as you now have built a company is truly transforming lives of just about every american. all the best to you. >> we, so wonderful to be here. thank you. adam: bye now. cheryl: all right. from capital hill to wall street, the debate over high frequency trading rages on.

adam: just two weeks ago reality show star kim kardashian launched a new videogame called kim kardashian hollywood. it is helping one company become big. they instructs users how to become a-list celebrities. they start on e-list, not a far stretch from her own life. believe it or not the game is on top of apple app stores of list of most downloaded games. rising to the number two spot. it is sure sign of the end times. the success given shares of the game's publisher, i say sarcastically, shares of blue mobile a big boost. they have surged more than 48% since the game's release. cheryl: the debate rages on as to whether high frequency trading is helpful or harmful for the markets. some say it provides much-needed liquidity. others say it gives some traders unfair advantage. adam: is there a way to level the playing field and make both side happy? joining us in a fox business
4:35 pm
exclusive, interactive brokers group chairman and founders, and one of the fathers of high frequency trading. and one of the problems that was brought up in michael lewis's book crash boys, was essentially front-running by high frequency traders. you have a proposal that would essentially end that? >> i do. adam: and that is? >> my proposal is that the sec should mandate all trading venues hold each liquidity removing order for a random period of time between 10 and 200 milliseconds. so what would that do? high frequency traders are often accused by front running other people's orders. what does that mean? an investor sees an offer of $20.05 for 500 shares and would like to take that offer, so he send in his order and by the time his order gets there, high
4:36 pm
frequency -- adam: jumps ahead of him. >> just ahead of himming, took the offer and sells it to him for $20.06. the investor lost $5 lost five dollars and high frequency trader lost $5. but not a huge amount of money. adam: it adds up. >> high frequency traders extract from the market. cheryl: chicago fed made some proposals, we were just showing those to our viewers. what do you make of proposals that the chicago fed actually put forward any know you yourself also written to congress about this exact topic? >> i have written the proposal. i think it's a good proposal. i have two issues with it. one it is a bit too complex and expensive timely meant because it basically rebuilds the entire market infrastructure which is not necessary in my view. and also i think that my proposal which is much simpler
4:37 pm
would attack more liquidity in the market. cheryl: there has been a lot of talk especially this week sec coming in and putting new regulations on high frequency trading. you say we need no more regulations? that things should stay as they are. >> i think that's right. we have to be very, very careful with regulations. we -- it is impossibility to comply with all the regulations. and, so, i think a simple proposal such as mine. enforcing brokers and financial advisors fiduciary duty would cede to all these problems. adam: what you said gets to the heart of the matter which is the dark pools. when the fed chicago fed's preproposal would push hidden orders to the back until more public orders have been executed 60 some odd dark pools out there, one , iex, which potentially will become a public
4:38 pm
exchange. are they already doing what you're proposing by slowing down? >> i would slow down the dark pools also. all trading venues i would slow down. adam: without sec requirement. >> that's right. otherwise, look, dark pools are sometimes beneficial to investors. people don't necessarily want to show all the side they want to buy or sell. adam: pension fund wants to sell huge volume. >> they would like to hide their order. that is what dark pools are all about. that is fine. often in dark pools we get better price for our customers than the open market. cheryl: also too, recently, we had attorney general eric schneiderman in new york be also critical of high frequency trading. what do you think of that? more just fear of unknown? is this politics. what do you make of this? black -- look, high frequency
4:39 pm
traders have different strategies. some are beneficial to the markets. some are abusive. the idea to keep the beneficial parts and get rid of the abusive part. that is what my proposal does, because i only would slow down liquidity removing order. not liquidity providing once and that's what we need high frequency traders for. providing liquidity. cheryl: had bart chilton on two days agoings and he said same thing. provide liquidity to the market. adam: thank you for joining us. it could be one of the more audacious hat attacks on the u.s. government. harvesting a treasure trove of information on tens of thousands of federal employees. we'll show what you happened and who may be responsible next. cheryl: talk about all tern tougher investment? how about investing in baseball superstar babe ruth? we have ceo of a auction company with unbelievable collectibles

4:45 pm
this is one of the hotter items that has been listed, promissoriry note for the yankees to red sox for payment of sale of babe ruth. there it is. >> exactly. everyone knows about the sales contract. originally sold for 99,000 in the early '90s. then sold for one million dollars at sotheby's about 10 years ago. would now be worth about 5 million. but this document is what the yankees actually used to the red sox. cheryl: yeah you. >> can see here signed by president of the yankees and red sox and was actually mailed to the red sox. no big deal. here is your promissoriry note. put in the mail and stamped 1919. cheryl: the minimum was 50. but going for 70,000, right? everything has been jumping up since this sale was announced. >> correct. the auction, the key with the auction it is live right now at golden auctions.com. anyone can go there to bid or monitor it. and then internet bidding end midnight on friday night tomorrow night. the auction is live at the
